C-nick, I think the feet need to be larger, it throughs off the perspective for me.

To make the feet the proper perspective would make the painting look strange to most... I shouldn't say anything about the painting but that's how I see it. Draft it out and see for yourself (unless he had small feet?)

My dear.....what LARGE collars they wore back then! :shock:

Thank you all! And Gary, I had enough trouble posing with my cousins for pictures as a kid, my grandma was never amused, let alone wear those collars for a sitting. :lol:

Thanks again everyone,

C.nick

'On a story tellers night' - Magnum (1985)
Copyright - Rodney Mathews - http://www.rodneymathews.com

I love the work of Rodney Mathews, whose artwork graced many Rock albums..
This particular scene is sooooo inviting and I wish that I was present at that table, nice and cosy by that big fireplace supping on one of those tankards of ale and listening to amazing stories all through the night:)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TOO C!!! :)
